While I'm too young to have seen The Grateful Dead in their prime, I love the fact that these sets are available on Archive. This has to be one of the best shows I've ever heard. Help on the Way > Slipknot> Franklin's > Music Never Stopped is one of the greatest set openers I've ever heard, by any group. LOVE IT. Rock on.

Subject: High Time
I taped this one right off the radio back at the time, good old WNEW, one of the best stations of all time. Played those XL-IIs over and over and over, I used to know every solo by heart. The tapes disappeared along with what's her name...well, at least she had good taste. And yeah, in total agreement on the High Time, it always was my favorite one...

Subject: High Time
This version of High Time is just beautiful,Keith's piano is the perfect counterpart for Jerry's heartfelt vocals.It does not get better than this.

This was my first dead show. We were 16 and had a parent drive us to the theater. When she pulled up she almost didn't let us out of the car. Goddam hippies

Subject: way to start a show!
This has to be my favourite show by far! From the first second until the end of Brown Eyed Women I can't hear traffic, family or my own thoughts... Some of the best transitions out there, from Franklin's to Music... makes me tingle... Probably the the coolest Brown Eyed Women too! This show is one of the first in a string of shows that spans almost four years where the dead are on almost every night.

Subject: The Era of Disco Dead
Funny, when others brushed off the Dead in 76-77 as "disco dead" they really showed their ignorance, for, it always seemed plain to me that the Grateful Dead played disco long before disco was a household word. Nonetheless...

This performance merits a 5, but the recording reveals FM glitches. Without them this would be a star of the highest magnitude.

If there had not been the FM multiplex wandering off signal and the cut in Cosmic Charlie this would be a flawless recording.

Nonetheless, it is beautiful ~ every single moment

Subject: Listen for the Playin and Let it Grow
Fierce... This is hot and can see how folks are torn between a 4 and 5. If you were there it's a definate 5, but the recording takes it down a notch. Great show.

Subject: there is a FM source!
I have a superb FM source for parts of this show. I recall having to break up the set order to get it on a 100min metal tape. I know the whole show is out there. I'll post it if someone requests, but its only Let it grow thru Going down the Road. The sound quality is A+ though. Excellent playing.

Subject: another flashback........
Listening to this recording was like a 'flashback' for me; from the loge, to the orchestra, to in front of the stage, watching Jerry and Bob 'communicate' w/ each other. It was a GREAT SHOW and I'm happy to now have it to listen to again and again.
THANKS!

The set list is killer and the songs are played well but the sound quality just isn't at the same level.

Reviewer: darkstarling - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 26, 2005
Subject: Problem with Cosmic Charlie
Cosmic Charlie is severely truncated, ending with a burst of digital(?) noise. I reproduced this with Shorten, VBR MP3 and Ogg Vorbis downloads. This concert is important to me, being my wife's first. If this is a problem with the source, perhaps there is an alternate as it was an FM broadcast.

Thanks to all who are making this thing happen.

Subject: where's the beef?
Funny sound-decent but not much bass. You can hear Phil but not as "up front" as I'd like. Makes the mix sound a little distant. And the end of Cosmic Charlie is cut by a static blip. However, they do seem to be having fun; a rip back into the Franklin's lyrics (...laugh the past away) has someone onstage saying "woo hoo" in response to Jerry's solo.
Reviewer: Blackieshamps - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 1, 2004
Subject: great show
this is one of my favorite shows from the late 70s. killer setlist all the way through. The first set starts off a little shaky with a not perfect help/slip but they get it by franklin's. overall terrific array of songs. second set is where it really gets hot imo.

extremely emotional high times, jerrys voice is really pouring out straight from the heart this whole set more than it always regularly is imo. something happens during the let it grow jam which leads into one of the funkiest and best dancin's and then conversions into cosmic charlie which is maybe my favorite song of all time and usually seems like a hard one for them for them to nail, but they got it beautifully at this show. then a nice trio of rock and roll numbers to end it. fantastic.

Subject: decent show
a Pretty solid night, but not as energetic as other shows earlier this tour i.e: june 9th '76. The show quality is a B+, the sound quality is a B- b/c there's nothing pumping from my subwoofer channel for whatever reason.
Reviewer: Btopia - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 25, 2004
Subject: Amazing show....
This is one of those gems that should be in everyone's collection. Fantastic sound quality that highlights how much fun the band was having that night. It seems as though the Capitol Theater had a mandate that the Dead would play peak shows there, and this is a great example. The opening Help> Slip> Franklins> Music Never Stopped sets the stage for an amazing night, this is just fantastic playing with the band very tight. The Cassidy is picture perfect, probably my favorite version. The Playin' in the Band has all the flavors of a Dark Star that wouldnt be played for years to come. A beautiful High Time, and one of those insane Let it Grow jams with the great drumz in the middle, the perfect lead into a smokin' Dancin' in the Streets, disco style, right into Cosmic Charlie!!! Anytime you get a Not Fade Away encore you know its a special show, and this one does not disappoint....highly recommended. Many thanks to the ARCHIVE for sharing the fine tunes
